Will lend him a monitor until he can buy his own. Is actually quite exciting to supervise a build like this and will let him install drivers and software by himself (with direction) which is the bit I dislike the most about building. Will insist he do it perfectly, which I never do :smoke: Most of the build is 2nd hand parts but gave him a new EVGA 650 platinum PSU for his birthday and now he has a new CPU so good to go. If all goes well I will have trained him well enough that he can do all my future mods for me while I sit back and give sage advice and of course convert him to a folder.

kiore, how old is the family friend? I recently gave my son one of our older work computers and was thinking in the next few years, he may need to upgrade. Was thinking would be a good project for him to work on.
